In this installation the figure is used to explore that which is seen and that which is kept close to the skin. The Waitress, the Mother, the Lover, all of these roles play a part in a woman’s life, fragmentary and coexisting. It is a self-portrait in parts. The intentional siting of this work in a lingerie shop places the installation in context and displays what is often hidden, the dreams and inner support that are only hinted at on the surface.
The Act of Becoming was part of MadArt: Window Art Project in the Madison Park neighborhood of Seattle in 2009.
